I recently switched from my old Canon Rebel XT to a Nikon d90. I know, Canon lovers are probably throwing tomatoes at their computer screen right now. But I really felt like Canon didn’t offer a comparable camera for me to upgrade, that is, without spending a big ol’ wad of cash. So I settled on the d90 and I gotta say, ihavnoideawhatimdoinwidit.
Totally relearning a camera is something this old gal just can’t seem to manage between diaper changes and laundry loads. So there, I have an excuse.
But I really want to learn to take better pictures. It’s just so. much. work.
Here’s the one I took of Sophie, spur of the moment, and I love that about it.
Taken in the kitchen, very everyday-ish, but her beauty is extraordinary.
Even through the amateur lens of her mamarazzi mama 😉
I think it’s a BEAUTIFUL photo!! And having a BEAUTIFUL subject sure doesn’t hurt! Such a cutie!!
Tha is a beautiful picture!!! She is so pretty
Oh, and I’m laughing because I have a Canon Rebel but am getting to upgrade to the Canon EOD 40D (found a great sale). I understand about the learning new things!!!! while still trying to mother, etc….
How can you possibly go wrong with a subject as BEAUTIFUL as Sophie! 😉
And you go, girl, with the “mammarazzi” group…I just know YOU will rise to the challenge!! Keep on snappin’ that camera! 😉
I am not sure what is “ordinary” about it at ALL!! I think you are going to do great with the subjects you have around your place 😉
That is one BEAUTIFUL girl you’ve got there!
What an amazing thing these photos will be for your kiddos, especially as they get older!

Absolutely gorgeous! And the photo isn’t bad either.

I think you’re gettin pretty good at the photography thing… 🙂
Such a nice picture of your beautiful girl! Keep learning, I’ll be taking notes!
She is Regal!
Hang in there.. you will love that D90!

As I said over there too—this is a GORGEOUS photo of Sophie! I think you are doing pretty darned well with that new camera. Welcome to the other side (nikon). Also…read the post below ad your Vivi is just adorable. Y’all are so blessed.
LOVE ME SOME SOPHIE…
Your not so bad, either.;)
wow. that’s a gorgeous picture mom. the more i look at it, the more i love it. 🙂
again, gorgeous photo! i am surprised that the difference between canon/nikon is so great…you would think that, for the most part, they’d be the same. but perhaps it is because you upgraded? maybe the learning curve is steep when you upgrade even in the same brand????
I’m a Nikon girl too. I have the D80 and am looking to upgrade to either the D90, or the 700. I’m currently taking the rawsii class (because of you:) and love it. I have had my camera for over a year and never went off the auto setting but Christie is making me learn how to use the manuel setting and I LOVE it.
stunning!!! Still freaking out over here! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
did I mention AHHHHHH??
Left you a message…

Um, just so you know, you’re holding your own quite well and making me rethink my own qualifications for the mamarazzi blog! Seriously, your photos are awesome.
And I just have a Nikon D50, but I truly love it. I would upgrade to the D90 in a heartbeat. And if I’m reading the manual right (which I have a hard time slowing down long enough to do myself), I cannot shoot on manual and adjust the ISO. BUMMER. So I’m going to start selling blood plasma so I can get me a D90. 🙂
